Published Jul 04, 2011Here at Exclaim!, we can write about moombahton all we want, but still, nothing is quite the same as hearing the music for yourself. As the saying goes, sometimes writing about music can be like tap dancing about architecture. That's why we are so excited to be working with the new Rdio streaming service, so you can now easily spin the tunes we keep writing about. Whether it's the latest in hip-hop, punk, country or metal, we've been pulling together genre playlists on Rdio for all of it.
Check out the Exclaim! Rdio page to see what we've been loving lately and to plug into our customized playlists. If you read a glowing album review and want to know what all of the hype is about, we have a playlist for each one of our review sections that we're constantly updating with songs from our latest writeups. These include playlists for pop & rock, punk, folk & country and hip-hop.
We even have playlists for our Timeline, which this month features the legendary "Weird Al" Yankovic, and some of the lesser-known genres we have covered in the Translator (like Italo disco and moombahton).
For those unfamiliar with Rdio, the service is an advertising-free music subscription site that integrates music streaming with social media. Think of it as the Facebook of discovering new music -- instead of snooping around your friends' photo albums, you can peruse their music collections. Users make a profile and then use the website's still-growing library of over 8.5 million songs to create and listen to their music collections and playlists. Even better, the service is available to everyone for a seven-day free trial. After that it's only $5 a month.
